The Office of Public Health Practice & Training


The Bloomberg School’s Office of Public Health Practice and Training was established in September 2008 to promote the application of research to practice at the School.

The Office of Public Health Practice and Training (Practice Office) is led by Joshua M. Sharfstein, Associate Dean for Public Health Practice and Training, and Beth Resnick, Director of the Practice Office.

The Practice Office strives to improve and advance the skills of the next generation of public health professionals, as well as the current public health workforce, through practice-based courses, training sessions, programs, internships, and other activities in the School, the community, and online that promote interaction and collaboration between the School and the practice community.

The Practice Office also collaborates with other practice-focused entities at the School, including SOURCE (Student Outreach Resource Center), the MidAtlantic Public Health Training Center (MAPHTC) and the Maryland Association of County Health Officers (MACHO).
